File:Peter Keeley.JPG[edit]

Hello there,

You sent a note regarding (File:Peter Keeley.JPG) found here ... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kevin_Fulton, this photograph is in the public domain and has been published in various newspapers see the link http://www.scribd.com/doc/221838268/Irish-News-wins-legal-battle-spy-s-photo, since were are on the subject, can you tell me how it is possible that Fulton is able to self-censor Wikipedia content an example being 17:40, 27 March 2013‎.

I am not claiming ownership of the photograph, just publishing content that puts a face to a story.

Look forward to hearing from you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by ManonR1 (talk • contribs)

Hi ManonR1,
the problem is that all content we can offer per our policy has to be legitimately under a free license. For still copyrighted works, only the author/creator can put them under a free license. The image is question is rather recent (< 70 years) and thereby still copyrighted. That is the reason why we cannot host it. As you want to use it on :en-Wikipedia, you can upload it locally (on :en) and claim fair-use, which is a valid policy on :en, though not on Commons.
Regarding your issue of "to self-censor Wikipedia", I assume that you are refering to the removal of the additions by User:Snapperjack. Well, both of these claims were unsourced and thereby violating Wikipedia policy. I assume that was the reason why they were removed. However, I am not really active on :en-Wikipedia. --Túrelio (talk) 20:24, 6 June 2014 (UTC)
